Did you know that there are really tough air compressors aside from ordinary ones? Atlas Copco’s portable air compressor is the first of its kind in the company’s facilities giving users value for money.
Atlas Copco’s portable air compressor is suitable for all construction activities ranging from water well drilling to explorational mining. The equipment is built to thrive anywhere, no matter the conditions. It endures extreme climates, altitudes, and air conditions while maintaining optimal performance.
Atlas Copco’s Portable Air compressor is passed through a series of rigorous testing processes before it is certified for the market. This helps to ensure the compressed air units are fit to endure any weather conditions or terrain. “The high-quality materials, durable components, protective features, and smart design of Atlas Copco compressors are put to the test. The units will remain corrosion, rust, and salt resistant even in monsoon conditions, giving our customers total faith in its performance for decades – while also giving the units an exceptional resale value”, explained Gill Dhooghe, VP of R&D at Atlas Copco’s Portable Air Division.
The climate chamber of the air compressor imitates the most challenging climate conditions such as freezing and desert-like conditions. The climate testing method includes a portable air compressor being placed inside the chamber, where Atlas Copco’s engineers can manually manipulate any climate conditions through a variety of mechanical processes. Again, temperatures can be tested between -25°C and 40°C, ensuring that each unit is always kept cool and at optimum performance.
Generally, air compressors are made up of complicated units. Once dust enters a compressed air stream, it can have detrimental consequences for downstream equipment and end products. However, Atlas Copco’s units are designed such that all new units and their filters are tested against dust to protect customers’ investments. “All units are also put through grueling road testing, where they are dragged through uneven terrain and their lifting beams tested to see what tensile forces they can withstand”, Dhooghe detailed.
Atlas Copco’s air compressor is a preferred choice on many construction sites. It helps to get things done easier and better in a professional way.
